Green Day will soon be playing arenas again, but first they're hitting smaller venues: The pop-punk band has announced their first SXSW appearance plus a handful of club shows.

The trio (plus, y'know, their tour backers and crew) will hit ACL Live on March 15, at the end of the same week Green Day docs "Cuatro!" and "Broadway Idiot" premiere during the film component to South By Southwest.

The band is playing three warm-ups in Texas/the Southwest at smaller spots, you can see all scheduled tour dates below.

Green Day had previously canceled their 2012/2013 tour dates due to frontman Bille Joe Armstrong's stint to rehab. Don't doubt that will play a significant part at least in the discussions around "Cuatro!" which chronicles the making-of the band's trilogy albums from 2012.

Meanwhile, another rowdy crew will be invading the Texas capitol: Tenacious D will be on-hand to support  web comedy series "Ghost Ghirls," which is centered on "the comedic antics of two young female ghostbusters, played by Amanda Lund and Maria Blasucci--a pair of investigators attempting to solve the mysteries behind paranormal phenomena. At the same time, they attempt to convince their clients, some other-worldly visitors and themselves, that they are legit."

The D's Jack Black makes a cameo in the 12-episode, scripted show, which is headed to Yahoo! Screen. There is a watch party scheduled at SXSW on March 13, with Black and Tenacious D cohort Kyle Gass scheduled to comedy-rock.

And speaking of comedy, recently the fest unveiled the comedy lineup, with stand-up, sketch and improv superstars. Fred Armisen, Scott Aukerman, W. Kamau Bell, Michael CeraBrett Gelman, Chris Gethard, Tim & Eric, Emily Heller, Moshe Kasher, Kyle Kinane, Ken Marino, Marc Maron, Eugene Mirman, Eddie Pepitone, Sarah Silverman, Jenny Slate, Aisha Tyler, Reggie Watts and many, many more performers are on tap for the fest, which runs over the film, interactive and music dates, March 8-16. However, most headlining comedy events will run over March 9-12.
